I smacked by CX2 into a tree limb and broke both lower blades. Replaced them and now it ain't flying like it used to. Seems to be some coupling as in, when I try to give forward elev it wants to go right, and there is very little forward movement in elev. The whole bird just feels wacked and I am looking it over. There does seem to be a lot of "slop" with these blades where they connect on the shaft, maybe thats normal. What else could have got broken, out of adjustment? It appeared to be just the blades broke. Swash looks level to me.
It was flying great before.
Can someone take a look at my video and see if you spot anything? I am not totally familiar with CX2 yet only had it for a short while.

I have seen this before but been a few years since i worked on these for customers. I want to say the lower head is made up ot multiple peices and that the portion with the pins for the drag links has turned. I see an angle on the links from the blade to swash and this is where your coupling is coming from, swash and head are out of phase. Rotate the pins inline with the balls on the blade and that will bring the swash into phase. Cant remember if that is a press fit or if you may have broken a retaining screw off in the head or shaft.

All these micros somehow turned my 450 into my BIG machine!?!?!?
